    of
    a) IGF
    b) FGF
    c) PDGF
    d) BMPR
    Answer: IGF

    Explanation:
    The IGF’s (insulin-like growth factors) are
    mitogenic, stimulating the fetal metabolism and
    coordinating the feto-placental metabolism.
    IGF-II regulates early embryonic development
    while IGF-I is responsible for the growth of the
    newborn.
    IGF-I signaling is an important mitogenic and
    morphogenetic regulator in hair follicle biology.
